Our Road Trip To Minnesota

Well, we've had just about every computer and cell phone issue you can imagine this weekend (hence, the lack of blog posts and Tweets in the last few days), but we did manage to get one video uploaded to YouTube this morning.

It's footage from our trip up to Minnesota last week.

It was a long drive, but documenting our travels on video did make it a little more fun.

Especially when we found out about Charlie.

Footage from Junk Bonanza (and an "it came from Charlie's barn" giveaway) coming soon!


Our demo reel taping went great, and they're actually gonna shoot some more stuff in Alabama when we get back home.

Hope I have time to clean the house!

I wondered where you had been the last couple of days! And here I thought you guys were actually taking a couple of days off! ;o)

Breakfast with you was the highlight of my weekend! Thank you for being every bit as I thought you would be. Sweet and very real. We could have talked for hours! Ok, maybe thats just me! haha.

Shooting at home? Great idea! We are going to see your smiling face on HGTV soon, I can feel it!

Looks like you guys had a blast! What fun roadtrippers you are! My hubby barely wants to stop to eat, let alone stop and shop at cool barns & junk places, lol :) Can't wait to see more!

ps. is that Kevin singing the songs? Awesome music! You guys have such a knack for putting great videos together!

Urban Farmgirl said...

Ok, I was finally able to watch the video. Love. Love. Love.


Leen said...

By far my favorite TLC video yet!

Can't wait to see what you got in Charlie's barn!

Jen Vogt said...

Layla, was that a small, vintage blue canning jar I saw in Charlie's hand?? I've been looking everywhere for one of those. Could I persuade you to make that your giveaway?? (And start begging to be the winner now!)

Can't wait to see more. My hubs and I are off to the Junk Jaunt in Central NE this weekend...300 miles of junk. Can't wait! Feel free to join us if you want to head north again :)

Who Are you kidding Miss Layla.
You and your beautiful home are always ready to welcome friends, family and T.V. crews.
You have the most beautifully decorated house with an extremely warm "sit a spell" vibe.
Good Luck.
Remember just in case "WINDEX". hehe ( like in My Big Fat Greek Wedding..does it all.)
Hugs. geri.

geri said...

I am in love.
Does Chrlie have a brother with a barn like his in Ct. hehe
I can't wait to see what you walked
or dragged away.
Love the video!
You and Kevin are wayyyyyyy more entertaining and cuter than anyone on HGTV these days.

Carla said...

No wonder you like Kevin; what a cutie! You guys are great to watch! Goes to show that when you love what you do, your joy carries over into all aspects of your life! Thanks for sharing!

Unknown said...

Looks like y'all had a wonderful trip! Excited to hear all about it. I can donate a couple of hours on Wednesday if you seriously need some help cleaning up. Just let me know!

Michelle @ BabyWears said...

So... I'm in BFE in Iowa. And apparently I need to find Charlie STAT! (Though I suspect those shutters are now in your possession instead of his.)

I am curious if you warned Charlie that showing his barn on your blog would likely be life-changing for his junk stock? ;)

Unknown said...

I am new to your blog, love it and the video!! Cant wait to see more! Thanks for sharing Sue

Jen Jensen said...

Looks like you had some fun times. I want to go to Charlie's Barn too!

JB Knacker said...

I am new to your blog as well...although have heard wonderful things about it...all correct. About had a heart attack when I watched your video (which was fun!) and heard you mention JB Knacker in Iowa (me!). A little worried as I had "dumped" most of the shop into a Budget truck to set up at the Bonanza?! And Charlie's Barn?...have heard of Chuck's Bargain Barn...will have to investigate! Thanks for the bit of excitement on a dreary, rainy Iowa day!
